Re: Parx Casino (Bensalem, PA) -- FAQ updated 2013.03.18

6/12 was time, but it hasn't gone in months. Nor do I see a 3/6 game suddenly springing up.

Hopefully the "promotions" are in fact for the players and not billboards or other room advertizing nonsense. This is never good for the player but the way they have it worded it is about as good as it could be.

3/6 will go everyday with likely 2+ games.

I assume it means that promo money will be used for things like high hand promos or other player promos, and not for billboards. Essentially, that all money that comes in will go back out to players.

It's the word 'monthly' I am mostly wondering about. Will they be paying out whatever is in the jackpot at the end of every month if it is above a certain amount?

I like how u are still eligible if u aren't at the table and have not received a "missed blind" button. This way players won't have the fear and anxiety that it will hit while they leave the table to go to the bathroom or take a short break. Just have to time it accordingly.

I doubt it. The BBJ will almost certainly run like every other BBJ you know of. I'm guessing they just mean they will be using the other promo funds routinely and paying it back to the players quickly, rather than sitting on it and building up a nest egg of player funds to be distributed at a later date (which is what some players have accused MD Live of doing, though I have no idea if it is accurate).

Helps promote hand washing (or at least leaves time to hand wash).

Smokers can exhale before running back to the table--don't want the JP to hit and be left out!

Not only ugly, but they are Gigantic! You can't tell by that pic but these slots are big enough to fit the playing cards in, Way, way bigger then needed.

Most people at my table last night seemed to think the BBJ coming April 1 was the equivalent of an April Fools' joke ... they don't believe it's going to happen.

Maybe if someone gets pissed off enough they can just dunk their cards in there

Don't think this is a joke if it was announced today.

Wonder what they are going to do when it happens. Bring the key to open the box to get the cards out right then? Or just bring a new deck and retrieve the cards later?

I would guess that the offender would get a 24-hour ban and a permanent ban for a second offense but that's just speculation on my part.

LOL -- they made it 6s or better to qualify for the BBJ? So lame. Sands does just any quads or better (with a higher payout), as do most other good casinos. Another FAIL for Parx, sigh

I apologize if this has been asked before but anyone from NYC go here? Looked it up and it seems like it's only 90 mins to Parx compared to the 3 hours to AC or 2.5 hours to Foxwoods. Thinking about making a trip some time...would love to here from anyone who has done the drive from NYC.
